HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Talked story yesterday by phone with James Hong who has been on at least 500 tv and film roles and counting...and he will be part of Willie Kʻs Film, Music and Martial Arts festival happening this weekend. He was also on the old Hawaii 5-0 show.
Good timing: CBS will hold an open casting call next week to help fill the streets of the new "Hawaii Five-0." The casting call will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 28 at Aloha Tower Marketplace. Theyʻre looking for all ages and ethnicities for speaking roles and background extras.
